    God's Perfect Timing

    Sunday, September 7, 2014, 1:42 PM [General]

              Sometimes, God’s "slowness" is for our own good.

              Sometimes, in our over-confidence, we ask for too

              much, too soon, and God knows that the result for

              us would be disastrous. Sometimes, God’s perfect

              timing is slower than what we want; yet in his

              wisdom, God gives us, not what we want, but what

              we need. If God seems slow in answering prayers,

              remember that he knows what you need, as well as

              when you need it, even before you know that you

              need it in the first place.

              God’s way is just "Perfect timing, folks."

    Prayer For The U. S. A.

    Thursday, August 21, 2014, 10:16 PM [General]

         Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask for

         Your forgiveness and seek Your directions and guidance.

         We know Your words says, "Woe to those who call evil

         good." but that is  exactly what we have done. We have

         lost our spiritual  equilibrium and reversed our values.

     

         We confess that:

         We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your World

         and called it Pluralism, moral pluralism.

         We have worshipped other gods and called it

         multi-culturalism.

         We have endorsed perversion and called it

         alternative lifestyle.

         We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

         We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

         We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

         We have shot the abortionist and called it justifiable

         We have neglected to discipline our children and

         called it building self -esteem

         We have abused power and called it politics

         We have conveted our neighbor's possessions

         and called it ambition

         We have polluted the air with profanity and

         pornography and called it freedom of expression

         We have ridiculed the time- honored values of our

         forefathers and called it enlightment

     

         Search us, oh God, and know our hearts today,

         cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide

         and bless the men and women who have been

         sent to direct us to the center of your will. I ask

         in the Name of your Son Jesus Christ.

                                                           Amen

    God's Love

    Monday, August 18, 2014, 10:31 AM [General]

        

           God's love is a feeling of true heart perception.

           Resting in His love which is so grand and so

           strong that nothing can influence it, remove it

           or change it.

           The warmth of His love is vast and yet tender,

           totally cares and sees you completely. This is a

           place where your heart begins to see and the

           feeling of Love reveals all.

    Purpose In Life

    Tuesday, August 12, 2014, 3:34 PM [General]

           We all have some kind of purpose on this earth.

           It's not to hurt people or tell them their worth.

           Everyone was put here with an equal chance.

           Take a look around you, take a good long glance.

     

           Some were meant to heal, and some to teach,

           Some  are used to build and some to reach.

           You may not know your purpose just yet,

           God will tell you when he knows you are set.

     

           Don't rush your fate, it has already been planned.

           And God will always be there to lend a helping hand.

           You will go through times that are ready rough.

           But you will always have someone when the going

           gets tough,

     

           Don't judge others, for when you do

           There is always someone else judging you.

           Think about things before they are said.

           Say your prayers before going off to bed.

     

           Take time just to sit and observe all things.

           A flower and it's petals, or a bird and it's wings.

           For when you just look at what is around,

           A new aspect on life could be what you have found.

     

           Live for today, live one day at a time.

           Live for yourself and for God, that's no crime.

           For when you do all these things to make your life great,

           You will find your way to the pearly white gate.

    Listening To God

    Wednesday, August 6, 2014, 5:28 PM [General]

        A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study.

        The Pastor had shared about listening to God. The young

        man  couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to

        people?"

     

        After service he went out with some friends for coffee and

        pie and they discussed the idea. Several different people

        talked about how God had led them to do things in different

        ways. It was about ten o'clock when the young man started

        driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to pray, "God..

        If you still speak to people, speak to me. I will listen. I will

        do my best to serve your wishes." As he drove down the

        main street of his town, he had the strangest thought, to

        stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said

        out loud, "God is that you?" He didn't get a reply and

        started on toward home. But again, the thought was there,

        "Buy a gallon of milk." The young man thought about how

        he'd heard that not all those spoken to recognized God's

        quiet voice inside of one's mind. Then he said, "Okay, God,

        in case that is you, I will buy the milk." It didn't seem like

        too hard a request to fulfill. He could always use the milk

        himself if nothing else. So he stopped and purchased the

        gallon of milk and started off toward home. As he passed

        Seventh street, he again felt the urge, "Turn down that

        street." "This is crazy," he thought and drove on pass the

        intersection.

     

        Again, he felt that he should turn down seventh street. At

        the next intersection, he turned back and headed down

        Seventh. Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will."

        He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he

        should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around.

        He was in a semi-commercial area of town. It wasn't the

        best but it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods either. The

        businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark

        like the people were already in bed. Again, he sensed

        something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the house

        across the street." The young man looked at the house. It

        was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or

        they were already asleep. He started to open the door and

        then sat back in the car seat. "God, this is insane. Those

        people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to

        be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should

        go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the car door,

        "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the door and I will give

        them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person,

        okay. I want to do as I wish. I guess that will count for

        something, but if they don't answer right away, I am out

        of here."

     

        He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could

        hear some noise inside.

        A man's voice yelled out,  "Who is it?" What do you want?"

       

        Then the door opened before the young man could get away.

        The man was standing there in his jeans and t-shirt. He

        looked like he'd just gotten out of bed. He had a strange look

        on his face and he didn't seem too happy to have some

        stranger standing on his doorstep.

      

        "What is it?"

     

        The young man thrust out the gallon of milk. "Here, I brought

        this to you," he said nervously. The man took the milk and

        rushed down a hall way speaking loudly in Spanish. Then from

        down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the

        kitchen. The man was following her holding a baby. The baby

        was crying.  The man had tears streaming down his face.

     

        The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying.

        We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We

        didn't have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking

        God to show me how to get some milk."

     

        His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask Him to send an Angel

        with some milk. Are you an Angel?"

     

        In response to hearing this, the young man reached into his

        wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in

        the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car as

        the tears were streaming down his face. He knew that God

        still answers prayers and that God still speaks to people.

    Special Dream

    Wednesday, August 6, 2014, 12:07 PM [General]

         

          Sherry Moore Budniak of Lagrange,  Kentucky, had

          never thought of dreams as special.  She had just

          had her third daughter and also had gone through

          a tubal ligation, due to her rocky marriage. She

          would not bring any more innocent children into this

          household, she had decided, where things were more

          like a nightmare than a dream. But her husband still

          wanted out, and soon left her. Sherry worked hard

          to keep her little family together, and try not to fall

          apart. However, there were, on occasion, little signs

          around her, events that told her she was not alone.

          "Once my four-year-old told me that she often saw two

          bright angels that followed me everywhere," Sherry

          says. "And sometimes I simply felt a presence around

          me."  Often she prayed that God had not forgotten her,

          and  would bring her a good man to love and appreciate

          her.

     

          Several years passed, and then Sherry met Chris, a

          wonderful man and an answer to her prayers. Soon they

         were married. "Chris is a caring husband, and a

         wonderful stepfather to our daughters," Sherry says. "And

         he never once mentioned his regret at not having a child of

         his own." But Sherry knew how he felt. And when she

         consulted her physician, he believed that there was a chance

         Sherry could become pregnant again. "We began an

         agonizing journey," Sherry says. "And finally things worked!"

         The couple was overjoyed. This baby would have all the love

         it needed, Sherry knew.

     

         One day in May 1998, Sherry came home from work

         unusually exhausted. She was midway through her

         pregnancy and had been feeling well. But now she went

         to bed, and fell into a deep sleep. At one point, she felt a

         light touch on her toe.

         Immediately, she opened her eyes and looked at the clock.

         Three-thirty a.m. Then Sherry saw something else. "There,

         standing by our bed was a very tall woman with dark wavy

         hair," she says. "It was an angel, and it seemed to be

         floating, and glowed the most glorious shade of blue. For

         some reason,  I wasn't at all afraid." Nor was she in pain.

         Then the woman spoke. "Get up, Sherry. We will have to try

         this again." Sherry obeyed. Horrified, she discovered that

         she was bleeding profusely. Chris called her physician, and

         they rushed to the hospital. Sherry had miscarried.

         Furthermore, she had been near death. "If you hadn't

         awakened when you did," the doctor told Sherry, "you

         would have bled to death." Sherry hadn't awakened by

         accident---she was sure of it. Nor was her vision just a

         dream---it was far too clear. But she was heartsick too.

     

         Had it been wrong of her to try and have another baby?

         Should they abandon their dream? One night, she

         remembered something. "My angel said, 'WE will have to

         try this again"," she told Chris. "I think, if we do try, it

         will work this time." Her husband wasn't so sure. But his

         longing for a child overcame his objections. And nineteen

         months later---just before Christmas---Chris and Sherry

         brought their new baby daughter  home.

     

         During her second pregnancy, Sherry never saw the dark-

         haired woman. "But I will remember her until I die, and

         treasure the experience," she says. "I fully expect to see

         her again someday."
